No not really.
Wood doesn't conduct electricity. The mobo is on standsoffs so it won't touch the wood, the psu is connected to a ground electricity plug. So evverything is cleared of static electricity.thumb.gif

Later today i will come with a new update smile.gif

Im also building almost all wooden case cooled by air and Im novice in physics of electricity but aint that exactly the possible case when static electricity builds up and may discharge? Lots of moving air over non-conductive surface building up on it until it accumulate enough to discharge? Dry air environment plus dust accumulation for combo effect heh?

Im consered of that and looking for ways to ground entire case surface, with some metal foil or conductive paint.

And great work there, wood = wubsmiley.gif


EDIT: its hard to find proper information on net about wood and static, but this could be helpful http://www.woodweb.com/knowledge_base/Static_charge_on_wood.html

As promised, here is my update.

First thanx for all the awesome replies, you are on of the only forum that reacts on my build smile.gif

Have done a lot of work on the case, so it's almost finished wheee.gif
But I wrecked my hardware, so I won't be able to use it as server for the coming time.skull.gif

But further about the case:



First I got some DDR Ram, which apparently was ecc mad.gif
And one of those killed my mobo mad.gifmad.gif




Than I made a new HDD cage because the old one wasn't right.


(top)

(bottom)

After that I started on the top of the case, with a hole in the middle where a plexi plate will come. (2mm plexi)



Finished the side panel smile.gif



Replaced the two (broken) 92mm fans with one 120 mm, which is a lot quieter on 5 volt biggrin.gif


(Without cover)

(With cover)

An impression of how the cables will come when it's all placed. I'm only missing a HDD, where have I laid that thing down headscratch.gif



And last but not least, I made my own super bright LED Strip smile.gif

As I said in the startpost, I have ruined a lot of my hardware doh.gif
Rest in peace:
- Motherboard
- 4 fans
- 1 PSU
- 3 hard drives

Now I go searching for new hardware!

Till next time thumb.gif
